From Floral To Fall: Autumn Inspired Save The Dates

A new season is upon us, and that means out with the florals and in with the fall. Save the dates are a great opportunity to play around with colors and designs and figure out your style for the rest of your wedding stationery. It’s always nice to incorporate some seasonal tones into your save the dates because it keeps things simple, cohesive, tasteful, and it means you won’t be overthinking your designs.

So, what does constitute as an autumn save the date? Well, we’ve teamed up with Basic Invite so they could give us the ins and outs of seasonal save the date designs.

Rustic Designs

Rustic save the dates are always in, but especially during the colder weather. Leafy looks, romantic lanterns and lights, and real wood are all fitting save the date designs for the cosy autumn months. The great thing about going with a rustic design is that you are able to carry over that theme to your wedding. Whether your wedding is in winter or spring, this style is more about catering towards rustic details and less about conforming to the season.

Fall Colors

Fall colors can be tricky because there is so much going on during this season. You could associate fall colors with the greens, reds, and yellows of the changing leaves. Someone else might think of black and orange for a more festive outlook on fall. Or browns, cranberries, and earth tones are hugely popular for brides getting married around Thanksgiving and the holidays. Since Basic Invite has over 180 colors to choose from, each couple can decide for themselves what fall means to them, and create the save the date of their dreams.

Gold Foil

Foil stationery is to die for. It is so pretty and makes any design shine. Although Basic Invite offers rose gold and silver foil too, gold it most suitable for the autumn season and will look beautiful on any calligraphy or typography design. If you want your designs to pop, make those gold too.
